Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is charged with cultivating a DEI strategic action plan that will launch ASHT on its journey to ensure our professional community is supported, equitable and inclusive. The initial focus of the DEI Committee will be to explore existing ASHT governance policies and practices, collaborate and communicate with existing ASHT committees and divisions and conduct outreach to a cross section of our members and stakeholders.
